Thanks to Golden Village, I got to watch the movie ‘Enough Said’ in GV Gemini, a couple’s cinema, at Great World City.🙂
This seems like a funny scene, but it’s not:

Eva has just announced to her friends that Albert has trouble with whispering [he just doesn’t know how to]. His protest that “This is whispering” caused Eva to laugh out loud. One of the many things this movie tries to point out: Don’t embarrass your partner in front of other people, even if they are your friends.
Movie Synopsis from GV:
“A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) – a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems “almost perfect” except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne’s ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.”
What I Thought About The Movie:
I fully expected that the fiance would have trouble sitting through a romantic comedy film.😀 He tried his best. But I loved this movie – it just shines the spotlight on so many things that cause relationships to turn sour, such as:
1) Suddenly deciding that you can’t stand your partner’s flaws, quirks, peculiarities anymore (and even his bulging belly) even though you knew about all of them (or suspected some) even before marriage!
2) Focusing too much on other people’s opinions about your partner, when essentially all that really matters is what you think!
3) Not being interested enough in what is important to your partner – if she loves writing poetry, make sure you read those poems, try to understand them, and try to “get” her.
4) Having differing opinions about how to raise kids is fine, just agree to disagree.
I thought this movie is great for people like me, who aren’t married yet, so you kinda know what to expect later on. These things aren’t new. Couples fight over the stupidest of things and this movie is great ‘cos you get to laugh and learn at the same time.
One line really struck me – it went something like this: Second marriages tend to work ‘cos people have learnt how to compromise.🙂
Why not decide to compromise the first time round?😉
Go watch this movie. Enough said.😀
What I Thought About GV Gemini / How It Compares With GV Gold Class:
I caught the movie ‘Escape Plan’ in Gold class – read the review here.
GV Gemini is sort of like the in-between for Gold Class and the usual movie theatre seats. One Gemini ticket costs S$14 (weekday) while a Gold Class ticket costs S$29. Try them all and decide which you like best.🙂
GV Gemini doesn’t come with the reclining seats but there’s a lot of leg room, the pairs of cinema seats are separated from one another, and you get loads of privacy and can enjoy your movie in comfort.
It was my first time watching a movie at GV Gemini and I have no complaints.
And here’s my dining experience at the Gold Class Lounge:
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you try the Gold Wings, Duck Leg Confit and the Pineapple Fruity Sorbet. They are oh… so… good!🙂
We also received the Blankie Combo from GV. Pixelated blanket… for couples who don’t want to be seen by others. Celebrities, are you reading this? Muahaha! The best part is, this blanket is for two to share and…
Wait for it…
It comes with three holes for your arms: Couples have to share the middle one. I don’t know why you should be holding hands while catching a movie but apparently GV thinks that is what couples do… so…😀
GV also wants to provide moviegoers with a hassle-free experience via Quick Tix so we can enter the movie theatre quickly! Book your tickets online, via http://www.gv.com.sg or the GV app iGV, and get a unique QR code emailed to you. Get the QR code scanned via your mobile device and enter the movie halls – it’s that simple! No more queuing at the box office for ticket collection! *yay*
Finally, lots of thanks to Golden Village for the invite. The fiance and I had an enjoyable evening😀
